Sydney SME secures Royal Australian Navy contract

Sydney SME secures Royal Australian Navy contract

Defence Industry Minister Melissa Price has announced that Cirrus Real Time Processing Systems has been awarded a contract to improve the Royal Australian Navy’s training system capacity.

Defence Industry Minister Melissa Price has announced that Cirrus Real Time Processing Systems has been awarded a contract to improve the Royal Australian Navy’s training system capacity.

Sydney-based SME Cirrus Real Time Processing Systems has secured a $7.5 million Defence contract to extend its role in delivering Tactical Electronic Warfare (TACEW) simulation training systems to the Royal Australian Navy.

The TACEW system is designed to provide end to end training for the EW operators of the Navy’s Major Fleet Units (MFUs), with all of the relevant equipment and interactions between equipment emulated, and the impact of environmental factors and the signal processing operations within the equipment simulated.

This includes antennas, receivers, spectral analysers, collected data pulse analysis tools, common operating picture suites, countermeasures controllers and other equipment items.

The system enables trainees to learn how to utilise equipment to detect and identify intercepted pulses, manage countermeasure responses to real time threats and conduct signal analysis.

Cirrus has previously provided high-tech simulation workstations to Navy’s School of Maritime Warfare, located at HMAS Watson.

The simulation workstations blend traditional classroom learning with hands on practical training in a bid to better prepare the Navy’s sailors for duties at sea.

Cirrus has also delivered other training systems to the Navy, including the Communications Centre simulator at HMAS Cerberus and the Mine Hunting Simulation System at HMAS Waterhen.

Minister for Defence Industry Melissa Price said Cirrus’ latest contract is another testament to the strength of local defence capability.

“This contract demonstrates the capability of Australian businesses to continue delivering world-leading defence technology,” Minister Price said.

“Cirrus is just one example of how Australia’s defence industry provides cutting-edge technologies to help prepare the Australian Defence Force for the future.

“This investment demonstrates that our industry has the ability to develop and deliver world-leading advanced simulation engineering technology, to increase the Navy’s electronic warfare expertise.”
